Iran starts 'second round' of attacks against U.S. bases in Iraq: Tasnim

The second round of attacks started an hour after the first phase took place, the agency reported.

Persian friends of mine, supported the Shaw of Iran, and had to flee during the Revolution. 

This sounds nuts, even to me, but they say that it was the United States that instigated the Revolution, because the Shaw was becoming too, nationalistic in defiance of the US.  My friends were happy with the interest free loans and Western acculturation with the Shaw's regime.

Another Persian American, told me that the people of Iran all loved Ayatollah Khomeini like everyone's favorite uncle, but that his revolution got hijacked by the bad guys we see today.

Everybody's got a story.  The first casualty of war is the truth.

wtf, i love Iran now!

That's no insult by anyone.  Iran is a wonderful place; or at least it was.  Persians are wonderful people; for the most part in Tehran, at least.  They have been trying for years to be done with the Ayatollahs, but to no avail.  The US has on several occasions given them false hope.  Even a professor of mine who was pro Hezbollah, says that they need to get rid of that office of Supreme Leader.  I personally know two nice young women who are very, close friends.  One is Iranian American, and the other is an American Jew.

Pentagon Confirms Iran Launching Dozens of Missiles at U.S. Targets in Iraq

Iran began to launch over a dozen ballistic missiles targeting U.S. airbases in Iraq on Tuesday, U.S. officials confirmed.

Iran is taking credit for a rocket attack targeting the al-Assad airbase in Iraq, which houses U.S. troops. They announced that the missiles were part of “Shahid [martyr] Soleimani Operation,” hinting at an extended military operation against the United States. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) – not Hezbollah or one of many Iranian proxies in Iraq – took credit for the bombs.

Iranian state media did note later in the night Eastern time that the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) – a coalition of pro-Iran Shiite militias that Iraq has legalized into a formal wing of its armed forces, had “announced the start of Crushing Response Operation to the United States.”

As the PMF are legally a wing of the Iraqi military, any formal military operation on their part would constitute a military attack by Iraq against the United States. The U.S. military cooperated with the PMF in strategic operations against the Islamic State and recently suspended training operations for Iraqi troops.

“IRGC announced further details will be revealed soon,” several Iranian media outlets noted.

PressTV later carried a statement from the IRGC warning nations allied with the United States to cut ties or face military attack.

“We warn US allies providing bases for the [American] terrorist army … that any country serving as the origin of bellicose and aggressive attacks in any form against the Islamic Republic of Iran will be targeted,” the IRGC statement reportedly read.

The IRGC is a U.S. designated terrorist organization. The Iranian government branded the U.S. military a terrorist organization in response to the designation on the IRGC in April 2019.

Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement:

At approximately 5:30 p.m. (EST) on January 7, Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against U.S. military and coalition forces in Iraq. It is clear that these missiles were launched from Iran and targeted at least two Iraqi military bases hosting U.S. military and coalition personnel at Al-Assad and Irbil. We are working on initial battle damage assessments.In recent days and in response to Iranian threats and actions, the Department of Defense has taken all appropriate measures to safeguard our personnel and partners. These bases have been on high alert due to indications that the Iranian regime planned to attack our forces and interests in the region. As we evaluate the situation and our response, we will take all necessary measures to protect and defend U.S. personnel, partners, and allies in the region. Due to the dynamic nature of the situation, we will continue to provide updates as they become available.

Iranian state TV claimed that the attack is in retaliation for the death of terrorist mastermind Qasem Soleimani, the late head of the IRGC Quds Force. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard also issued a warning to American allies, including Israel.

“We are warning all American allies, who gave their bases to its terrorist army, that any territory that is the starting point of aggressive acts against Iran will be targeted,” the Guard said via the IRNA news agency.

The Fars News Agency, an Iranian state broadcaster, posted a live video feed of the assault online. PressTV claimed that the assault consisted of “tens of surface-to-surface missiles.”

ince the initial reports of the attack, multiple media sources are confirming the beginning of a second wave of rocket fire.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said the president is “monitoring the situation closely”:

Neither Iranian media nor the U.S. government officials have confirmed any casualties in relation to the rocket attacks, nor any property damage.

After online rumors initially suggested that President Donald Trump may address the nation regarding the attack, New York Times and Fox News reporters asserted that Trump would not be delivering remarks.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued notices banning American flights over several Mideast regions following the attack.

No confirmation on the missiles involved, maybe upgunned SCUDS or clones of Chinese missiles.  If the rumors of a second wave of missiles is true, that might indicate they have limited launching capabilities.  Makes no sense to wait an hour or two to send a second wave if you don't have to, makes your second (and subsequent batches) a target for counter battery fire.  Also doesn't saturate the air defense missiles, meaning a higher probably of successful interception.

You think the MSM might pick another SCUD stud this go round?

Seeing some stuff where there were saying 5 Iraqi's injured.  No one killed.  No US casualties at all.  Who knows if true?   Hopefully that is the case and things will settle.

I want Capt Kelly Sweeney, Master Mariner, on as C2C guest to discuss*. I like that guy. "Ahoy, Jorch" and then Skousen to explain to Norry- who is an expert in Middle-Eastern affairs in his own brain..... 

* luckily most of the vessels likely seem to be computer run with limited Filipino or Indonesian crews that "won't be missed" by the bean-counters or the press. The vessels, on the other hand....I wonder how the leasing, insurance, and re-insurance markets are going.....

No BDA yet but it's starting to look like the attacks were a token gesture.  No American casualties for the expenditure of 16 or so missiles.  They are either not willing to escalate hostilities in a direct confrontation with the U.S. or their missileers really suck.  Probably the former and the attack was no more than an effort to save face and satisfy those Iranians who aren't actually celebrating Solemeini's demise.  Expect that Iran will go back to conducting guerrillera/provocateur operations as before albeit with dwindling financial resources.  As of now it looks like Trump is playing his cards exactly right.

Ever see a shit fit up close?   This is beyond belief.  Never have I seen a public figure go totally ape shit in public before.  These are the people that Obama sent plane loads of cash to and expected to be reasonable.

shot down by the Iranians.  Possibly.  I'm gonna guess that the Iranians did shoot the plane down.  Fucking Trogs with fingers on the triggers.

Possible shrapnel holes and apparently Iran isn't going to cough up the black box.  You might be right.

No doubt.  I'm waiting for the loons in the MSM to start claiming it was a Trump-Russia collusion effort, though.
